Jazz Remedy is very pleased to bring back two of the greatest musicians in progressive jazz today! Grammy Award winning saxophonist, David Murray and multi-percussion icon, Kahil El'Zabar, come together in a very dynamic duo.

It’s impossible to express the depth of history & musical pedigree between these two players. They are consummate virtuosos, possessing ingenious interpretations within the history and future of Great Black Music! You'll be taken on a journey of profound sound that will uplift and transport your spirits away from the mediocre into the bliss of soulfully inspired creative music! It's going to be a rare treat to experience these two legendary musicians together!

David Murray is one of the most recorded musicians as a leader in the history of jazz, with well over 200 celebrated projects. As a tenor saxophonist, he perfected an instantly recognizable approach to improvisation that even in its freest flights, acknowledges the gravity of a tradition he honors more than most & altered the context for his improvisations as an infinite mosaic of musical challenges & explorations. He has won numerous awards over his vast career, including a Grammy for the Best Jazz Instrumental Group Performance, for his Tribute to John Coltrane and a Guggenheim Fellowship.

Kahil El’Zabar is one of the most prolific innovators of his generation, with more than 60 well-received projects & numerous international awards as musician & composer. In 2014, he was knighted by the Counsel General of France, and christened as a “Chevalier Medal of Letters”. In 2012, President Obama’s administration awarded him the International Ambassador’s Award in the Arts.
